My boyfriend whisked me away to the Ruzzini Palace in the heart of Venice for my birthday. The hotel is grand looking, clean, classically Venetian and staff friendly and helpful. Our room faced the Square and was nicely decorated with a separate dressing room and bathroom and had beautiful exposed wooden beams on the ceiling. My only criticisms would be that 1) as beams adorned the ceiling, the room had no ceiling light and, as such, was quite poorly lit esp in the evenings and 2) due to the design of and natural slope of the building, when walking close to the windows the floor shook slightly. Even with this in mind, we had peace, quiet and comfort and good breaksfasts every morning. The hotel can arrange most things for guests inc. water taxis to Marco Polo Airport, advice and bookings re Gondola's/motor boats and even run a private complimentary water taxi service to the island of Murano (but be prepared for the hard sell re buying glass and crystal). They also run a return boat service back to San Marco from Murano. If you want to look around the island you'll have to take the public waterbus back. Also for a hotel of its class, I didn't think €4 was a bad price for a decent glass of red wine. What really sells the hotel is its location. Maybe 8 minutes walk to the Rialto Bridge with clear signs and 8 - 10 minutes to the main square. Perfect.
